|Asia-Planet > Mongolia > Mongolia Tours > 12 days Ride in the Gobi Steppe|
A horseback journey across the Mongolian steppe land is an experience not available elsewhere on Earth. Steppe habitats once made up 25 percent of the global land area. Today the Pampas, the puszta, the Prairies and the Ukraine have largely been developed for agricultural output. Only the Mongolian steppes have survived. The high elevation of Mongolia creates unusually clear air - all the year round. It is an overwhelming visual experience of emptiness and vastness to ride across the completely silent treeless steppes. Stretching away into the distance: no trace of human activity except for the pastoralist´s - themselves and their herds.
The bus will take us out of Ulaanbaatar to the south, across the Bogdkhan mountain, and some 120-150 km over the treeless steppes until finding a family of famous horsebreeders and their gers. We will select some good riding horses among the hundreds available, saddle up, and ride until the steppes start to give way for the Gobi sands. Our gear will be loaded upon traditional wooden carts, used by the locals. Bactrian Camels will be tied to the carts.

Note : We have introduced a concept of practical and desirable ways of travel in Mongolia, which is the synergy of Western and Mongolian ideas brought about after many years experience of travel all across Mongolia. We emphasize the quality of human contacts and encounters with local people. Respect for the horse and local equestrian traditions, from which many lessons can be learnt. Shared adventures, living with horses, yaks and camels in the great outdoors, choosing the life of the nomad. An active holiday calling for some effort but with moments of complete relaxation and pleasure.
Transport: Mongolian families frequently move from one pasture to the other using wooden traditional carts.These are tied to the animals available in the region.Here we will use camels and/or horses.
Staff : A Mongolian English speaking Mongol guide will accompany the group at all times. A cook will follow, with an assistant. In addition, the services of the local herdsmen will be hired along with their animals. The horsemen will come from Batbadrakh's family. They follow a traditional lifestyle in the areas where we will be riding.
Meals: The meals will be prepared by our cook.We pride ourselves in having cooks adapt with western, vegetarian and Mongolian cooking on our trips. For breakfast we can usually buy fresh yogurt from the herdsmen in the local area.
Minimum riding ability: Competent rider. Fit and capable of riding at all paces confidently.Varying terrain, in the saddle for several hours on most days.
